What the Critics Are Saying...


Notebookcheck

The Mate RS looks smart with its sturdy and durable case. Likewise, performance is on par with other Kirin 970-powered devices. With that said, the device has too many weaknesses for its price. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS cannot meet the lofty expectations that its absurd pricing sets.

Android Authority

Between the notch-less OLED screen, generous storage space, wireless charging, and dual fingerprint scanners, the phone certainly has several notable perks. So if you like the idea of a P20 “Premium” and don’t mind spending the cash, it’s definitely worth a look, even if you don’t end up walking out...

You can get everything the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS does best on a phone that costs half as much — the Huawei P20 Pro — and its a massive struggle to find a compelling reason to splash out the extra.

We love the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS for its boldness. If this was a track race, this phone would be the odds-on favourite to win. On the day, however, it'd be the one to crash out in an explosive, expensive and memorable collision. Because this phone is a wonderful glimpse of what will be, wra...

Is the Porsche Design Mate RS the best Android smartphone of the moment? Yes, in my opinion. The smartphone has an attractive design, top performance, a killer camera and it offers a real technological innovation with the fingerprint scanner under the display.

Between the notch-less OLED screen, generous storage space, wireless charging, and dual fingerprint scanners, the phone certainly has several notable perks. So if you like the idea of a P20 “Premium” and don’t mind spending the cash, it’s definitely worth a look, even if you don’t end up walking out with one. Everyone else should wait for Huawei’s next flagships which may well include some of the same additional features.

We love the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS for its boldness. If this was a track race, this phone would be the odds-on favourite to win. On the day, however, it'd be the one to crash out in an explosive, expensive and memorable collision. Because this phone is a wonderful glimpse of what will be, wrapped into the body of what isn't yet quite there.

A largely excellent high-end smartphone that’s let down by gremlins

from TrustedReviews

As a combination of the best aspects of the Mate 10 Pro and P20 Pro, the Mate RS is largely a success. And its design is nicer than either of them. You get a sublime screen, great battery life, an excellent camera – provided you’re sensible with its AI assistance – and huge storage options.

Big features at a big price

from TechRadar

The Mate RS comes with more optional storage than any phone before it, a new cooling system and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The rest is basically a Huawei P20 Pro in a Porsche Design body. So yes, this phone is incredibly expensive, but unlike many luxury items, it delivers both style and substance.
